Chair From Maison Chareau/de Verre/Dalsace

Violence is not in my nature, but I might be tempted to kill someone for this:



Wait for it ...



These are such wonderful reinterpretations of petit-point chairs, and almost discrete when viewed from the side or back. Perfection. Mermaids, red doves and ravens fall down the back and arms, and there's a little CB in the lower right ... Christian Berard?

If I ever, say, become an evil hedge fund manager, I think I'll acquire them both or have an exact replica made of one, and put on casters, and sit stroking a cat with my back to the door, only to slower turn, and ... bam! Cat, mermaid, evil-hedge-fund-manager, red doves! It packs a certain visual punch, no? And so much better than the expected tufted-leather chesterfield.

The chair is unbelievable. In terms of beauty.

Thanks for commenting on Nick Haus! I look forward to seeing what you have to say. Unfortunately, I had to stop taking Anonymous comments -- too much spam, too much vituperative. Come out from behind the curtain, ye nasty Anonymous! Everyone else, please, I love to hear from you.
